“One of the best written songs to come through my studio has been “Cowboy’s Last Ride” with lyrics and music by songwriters Randy Zahara and Jim Shaw. Check out this couplet: “Silver buckle pride wrapped as tight as a knot Put out to pasture and then forgot” Ego can get ya, man. The song is full of good lines, and performed with artistry and depth by the great Dale Ziech. This was a special project to work on. Check out the song at the link:” - Ezra Cipes (Ezra C Productions)
